What is Aloo Paneer Paratha?

Aloo Paneer Paratha Recipe is a pan-fried Indian flatbread paratha recipe with a delicious and healthy stuffing. Since it is pan fried it has a crispy exterior. The stuffing is of potato, cottage cheese, onions, and some spices.  The crunch of onions gives a good surprise to an otherwise soft stuffing.  The spices give good flavors to the Aloo Paneer Paratha.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Aloo Paneer Paratha

Boiled potatoes, paneer, and onion along with some spices are needed to make Aloo Paneer Paratha. I generally make Aloo Paneer Paratha when I have some leftover paneer. Kasuri methi compliments paneer very well. Apart from that roasted cumin powder and garam masala also give a good kick. If I am packing the parathas I cook them in oil and if I am serving them immediately I cook them in ghee. The dough that I use is slightly softer than that of chapatti.
What to serve with Aloo Paneer Paratha?
Green chutney, masala chaired chili garlic chutney etc.

How to make Aloo Paneer Paratha

1. Prepare the stuffing : In a big bowl add 3 boiled and mashed potatoes, ¾ cup crumbled paneer and 1 chopped onion. Add salt to taste, ½ tsp red chili powder, ½ tsp garam masala powder, 1 tsp roasted cumin powder, 1 tbsp dried fenugreek leaves and chopped coriander. Mix everything well.


2. Prepare the paratha : Take a portion of the dough. Roll it. Add approximately 2 tbsp stuffing. Seal it. Again roll it carefully.


3. Cook the paratha : Heat a pan/skillet. Put the paratha on a hot skillet. Cook on high flame. Once you see small bubbles flip the paratha. Reduce the flame to low and cook till brown patches appear on the other side too. Flip and increase the flame to high. Apply oil on both sides, cook on medium flame till nice golden brown.

Tips: Flames are very important while cooking parathas ?


4. Grease paratha with butter or clarified butter : Once cooked put it on a perforated plate. Grease with some butter or clarified butter.


5. Bon appétit : Serve aloo paneer paratha with curd or pack in the box with some tomato ketchup.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
